Let's face it -- once those new Super Street Fighter IV
costumes come out, the game's community will be split into two age-old castes: The haves
and the have-nots
. How will these two groups be able to play against one another, when one sports fancy duds the likes of which the other has never seen
? Capcom recently explained
that players without the DLC who play against a character using a new costume will still be able to fight against said player, though it will appear as though they're wearing their default costume.
can be prevented by downloading a free "Catalogue" add-on, which will allow players without the DLC to see the new outfits on other players. The Catalogue will come in two chunks, the first half arriving on Oct. 26 -- the same day as the first batch of costumes -- and the second on Dec. 21. This add-on has only been announced for the 360 so far; we've contacted Capcom to see if PS3 players will have access to it as well.
